Athletic Mission/Philosophy Statements
The Ben Bolt-Palito Blanco Athletic Department is committed to excellence; we strive to provide experiences that enhance our students personal and team growth.
The interscholastic athletic program is an important part of the educational process of the school district and is an extension of the classroom, serving as an arena for learning. We strive to have each student athlete enjoy a positive experience while we develop competitive teams. Students deciding to become a part of the athletic program must understand that they are accepting the privilege and benefits of participation and should fully appreciate that they have taken on certain specific obligations and responsibilities.
Interscholastic athletics are provided with the belief that the following goals may be accomplished through membership on an athletic team:
A. Competitive Greatness
B. Good health and physical fitness
C. Good sportsmanship and fair competition
D. School spirit and loyalty
E. Moral development and training
F. Social skills development
G. Emotional maturity development
That success of the interscholastic athletic program is not based solely on the win-loss record of the teams. Instead, a goal of the program is to have each participant reach his/her maximum potential.
